Someone cheaped out and got the el cheapo paper.
The low quality paper has paper dust on every page....
when the printer feeds this cheap paper thru the machine it drops the dust onto the tonor cartridge rollers and causes the roller to accumulate toner on the roller... this in turn is transfered to the pages being printed.
check your machines operation manual. There may be a clean cycle you can try to run to clean the rollers...
I had to buy a new toner cartridge for mine when this happened.

Brother dcp 7040 prints and then prints too light


Before refilling, clean entire cartridge units. Remote its cleaning blade and clean it with an IP solutions and make sure no bends in cleaning blade. Do not mix new toner powder with old one. Also clean plastic portion below the developer roller also. Then the same complaint found, clean the LSU unit of the machine. Now it work properly.

How do I clean the toner


Sounds like a poor quality toner was put in your cartridge. If you are using remanufactured cartridges see your remanufacturer for a replacement. If you are using OEM cartridges contact Brother directly and they can sort out the issues and supply replacement cartridges.

Brother DCP-7040 Laser Printer Issue


With the computer off will the printer still make a copy? If the printer can still make a copy stand alone, then try deleteing the printer and reinstalling the printer driver.

My Brother DCP 7040 printer can only print 1 copy... even if input request to print multiple copies of something


I've had the same problem with my Brother MFC-9440CN and XP Pro.
Try changing Printer properties (Control Panel\Printers) and click Advanced\Printer Processor button. Here you can try to change Printer processor: WinPrint, ModiPrint, hpzpplhn, LMPRTPRC.

I solved my problem choosing hpzpplhn (RAW).You can also try to deactivate 'Enable advanced printing features' in the printer, advanced, properties...

How to check the toner level of Brother printer


It has no accurate measure of the toner left, it is reset when you put in a fresh toner and just counts prints. The Brother shines a light thru a little window from right to left and when the toner is empty the light shines thru and it says it's empty.
